“…one of the most magical events...ever.” - Attendee, Jazz Age on the Delaware
Step back in time at Philadelphia’s last remaining Gilded Age mansion along the Delaware River. A soirée like no other, plan to step out in your best period attire and celebrate the elegance of the era. Guests will enjoy an afternoon of 1920’s era music and dancing, lawn games, food, vintage-inspired cocktails, plus fashion and pie contests. Proceeds benefit Glen Foerd, one of Philadelphia's most magical public parks. More details to come. Check out the video from last year's event by visiting www.glenfoerd.org, and clicking on the Jazz Age icon on the right side of the home page.
